The Political Supreme Court By UP Press
Item #: 9715426954

The theme of this book is that there is no separation of law and politics. It looks at Supreme Court decisions from the lens of a political behaviorist without the blinders on the eyes of the law practitioner. The focus is on Supreme Court leading cases on constitutional law, because it is when the high court decides constitutional cases that it becomes a political body, for good or for ill.

This holds true especially under the present constitution, which has virtually erased the fine line initially drawn under the late and unlamented separation of powers principle, such that when two political bodies meet —e.g., the Supreme Court and Congress— it results in a clash of titans, which reached its peak in the recent impeachment of a chief justice drama that has now become part of our legal history.
